March 20th

On March 20th, we will find if we are moving, and where we are moving. March 20th is Match Day for medical students across the county. I can see it: we will all be in some swanky hotel ballroom, there will all these 22 year old single boys and girls with large excited eyes and a bit of drool coming out the corner for their mouth. I mean, could anything be more exciting than moving and starting your first real job ever?

Then there will be Hubby and me, in a corner quietly praying. We’re not religious, but we’re frantically working on it before March 20th arrives. The prayer will sound something like this, “Oh dear one, or ones, please let a fairy fall out of our envelope that will cast a (safe a reversible) sleeping spell on our three children from mid-June until mid-July, or whenever we have fully finished our move, we have found schools for them, and Mommy has found a job. It doesn’t really matter where we end up, but please put our children to sleep for that bit of time. Oh, and if it isn’t too much trouble, please cast one more tiny spell on them so that they LOVE wherever we end up. Super. Thanks!”
